Pastor Rick and his family


It all started when…

The Connection started on Easter Sunday, 2006, at the Exhibition building by the Silver Spurs arena; that first Sunday was exciting as we baptized two brand new Christians and we’ve been on an exciting journey ever since. We are a church that is committed to teaching the Bible in a casual and relevant format. We are a church committed to connecting with people who have little or no church background and providing them with a simple, practical process to know and become like Jesus. On Sunday mornings, you’ll enjoy meeting people over coffee and donuts, you’ll experience a worship band and practical, biblical teaching, but that is just the beginning; if you like what you see, you can begin exploring our construction process to grow into all that God intended you to be.

We have a beautiful facility that we lease in partnership with the Osceola Council on Aging; the exciting thing about this arrangement is that rather than spending God's money on mortgage payments, all of our facility lease is used to help the elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged in Osceola County—this has proven to be a wonderful partnership, giving us new, state-of-the-art facilities, and helping to further their mission which aligns with our third Construction Phase—serving others!

When you visit, you’ll come in the main entrance and the Kidz Connection have their own wing to the left with beautiful rooms for nursery, 3-5yr olds, and K-5th grade. These are secure and maintained to ensure your child has a safe and great experience while learning to experience God. The adults worship to the right in the West Wing; when you walk into the worship room you’ll see refreshments, a worship band, and a bunch of people who just want to get to know God and each other better. We hope you’ll stop by and make The Connection! On Wednesday, our middle and high school ministry meets at our wonderful facility. God is working to grow our youth into world changers by teaching them the Word and helping them live it out through local and short-term missions.
